I-ON Digital Corp.

 

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1: Organization and Operations

 

I-ON Digital Corp. (“the Company”) was incorporated on July 5, 1999 and is engaged in providing digital-based enterprise solutions, including the digitization and distribution of precious metals, primarily gold and other asset-based digital securities on the Block chain. The corporate headquarter was located at 15 Teheran-ro 10-gil Gangnam-gu Seoul, South Korea. The Company provided enterprise content management services to customers primarily in Korea, Japan and Indonesia, by developing industry-leading products such as ICS (web content management system), iDrive (e-document management system), LAMS (load aggregator’s management system), e.Form (mobile contract system), IDAS (digital asset management system) and ICE (content delivery system).

 

On or about August 1, 2021, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary I-ON Communications, Ltd. (“Communications”) formed a new subsidiary named eformworks Co., Ltd. (“e.Form”) into which Communications moved its electronic signature operations. Communications contributed approximately $253,000 on August 1, 2021 and $77,000 on September 30, 2022 to e.Form to subscribe for its founders shares and owns 59.82% of the outstanding capital stock of e.Form.

 

On June 28, 2022, the board of directors of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary I-ON Communications, Ltd. (“Communications”) approved to form a new subsidiary named EIPGRID, which provides the community energy service platforms. Hence Communications contributed approximately $773,000 to EIPGRID to subscribe for its founders’ shares, and considered a subsidiary to consolidate.

 

On September 29, 2022, the Company effectuated an Equity Transfer Agreement (the “Sell-Off Agreement”) among the Company, Communications and JFJ Digital Corp., a Delaware corporation (“JFJ”), whereby all of the outstanding equity of Communications was transferred to JFJ in exchange for the return of 15,306,119 shares of the Company’s Common Stock held by Jae Cheol Oh and Hong Rae Kim, the Company’s principal executive officer and members of the Board of Directors (the “Sell-Off”). Pursuant to the Sell-Off Agreement, in addition to acquiring all of the outstanding capital stock of Communications, JFJ assumed all responsibilities for any debts, obligations and liabilities of Communications and acquire all rights to any assets of Communications, including, but not limited to, the Subscription Amount.

 

As a result of the Sell-Off, Communications ceased being a subsidiary of the Company. Accordingly, the operating results of Communications are reported in pretax income (loss), income tax, income (loss) before loss on equity investment, loss on equity investment, income (loss) before non-controlling interest, non-controlling interest income (loss), and net loss from discontinued operations, in the Statements of Operations for the 9-month ended September 30, 2022 presented. All amounts and disclosures included in the Notes to Financial Statements reflect only the Company’s continuing operations unless otherwise noted. For additional information, see Note 3 “Discontinued Operations” and Note 5 “Deconsolidation of Subsidiaries.”

 

On September 28, 2022, I-ON Digital Corp. (the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) entered into a Series A Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with I-ON Acquisition Corp., a Florida corporation (“IAC”). In January 2023, the Purchase Agreement was executed and the ownership changed to IAC. The Company adopted the operations of IAC. Accordingly, the Company is in the business of providing digital-based enterprise solutions, including the digitization and distribution of precious metals, primarily gold and other asset-based digital securities on the Block chain.

 

In March 2023, the Company signed a marketing consulting service agreement with a marketing consulting service company (the “Consultant”). According to the agreement, the Consultant will provide a comprehensive marketing, branding, and investor relation team focused on amplifying, growing, and refining the Company’s brand messaging and thought leadership position in the precious metals, web 3.0 and overall financial market place. The term is eighteen (18) months and renews automatically in six (6) month increments. The Company pays $11,000 for the monthly fees. The service agreement ended at the end of June 2023 by mutual agreement.

NOTE 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

The summary of significant accounting policies of the Company is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, who is responsible for integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared by management in accordance with both accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in audited financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading.

 

In the opinion of management, the balance sheet as of December 31, 2022, which has been derived from audited financial statements, and these unaudited condensed financial statements reflect all normal and recurring adjustments considered necessary to state fairly the results for the periods presented. The results for the period ended September 30, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year ending December 31, 2023 or for any future period.

 

These unaudited condensed financial statements and notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the Management’s Discussion and the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern. However, the Company had limited revenues since the Sell-off of its subsidiaries in September 2022. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

As of September 30, 2023, the Company has completed two digital platforms to establish a stabilized source of revenues sufficient to cover operating costs over an extended period of time. Those platforms are in the implementation stage in Q3 2023.

 

The Company’s business prospects have changed since the new management took control of operations in January 2023. During the period ended September 30, 2023, management commenced new initiatives in technology development and acquisitions. In connection with these initiatives, Management plans to prepare the Company for capital formation and new business development through capital raising vehicles. Management’s efforts are noted, though there can be no assurances that the Company will be successful in this or any of its endeavors.

 

Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements

 

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. As a result, actual results could materially differ from these estimates.

 

Foreign Currency Transaction and Translation

 

During 2022, the Company’s principal country of operations was Korea. The financial position and results of operations of the Company were determined using the local currency, Korean Won (“KRW”), as the functional currency.

 

  I-ON, Ltd (Japanese subsidiary) – The financial position and results of operations of I-ON, Ltd, the Japanese subsidiary of the Company, were initially recorded using its local currency, Japanese Yen (“JPY”). Assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currency were translated to the functional currency at the functional currency rate of exchange at the balance sheet date. The results of operations denominated in foreign currency were translated at the average rate of exchange during the reporting period. All differences were reflected in profit or loss.
     
  Consolidation – Assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the balance sheet date were translated at the exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date. The results of operations were translated from KWR to US Dollar at the weighted average rate of exchange during the reporting period. The registered equity capital denominated in the functional currency was translated at the historical rate of exchange at the time of capital contribution. All translation adjustments resulting from the translation of the financial statements into the reporting currency, US Dollar, were dealt with as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income.

Segment Reporting.

 

FASB ASC 280, Segment Reporting, requires public companies to report financial and descriptive information about their reportable operating segments. The Company operates in one segment – financial technology services. The Company’s chief executive officer has been identified as the chief decision maker.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The core principle of the revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle: 1: Identify the contract with the customer; 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract; 3: Determine the transaction price; 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and Step 5: Recognize revenue when the Company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all money market funds and highly liquid financial investments with maturities of three months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation of property and equipment is computed using the straight-line method, based on the estimated useful lives as follows:

 

Facility equipment  4 years
Automobile  4 years
Office equipment  4 years

 

Repairs and maintenance are expensed as incurred. Expenditures that increase the value or productive capacity of assets are capitalized. When property and equipment are retired, sold, or otherwise disposed of, the asset’s carrying amount and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations.

 

Intangible Assets

 

When the Company acquires an intangible asset, it is recorded at acquisition cost (the purchase price of the intangible asset and the costs directly related to the preparation of the asset for its intended purpose). The cost of an intangible asset acquired in a business combination is measured at the fair value at the acquisition date according to the accounting standards for business combinations. Intangible assets with a finite life are amortized using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives.

 

The estimated useful lives of the respective asset categories are as follows:

 

Development costs   3 years
Intangible assets excluding development costs   10 years
Other Intangible assets – Core technology platforms   3 to 5 years

 

10

 

 

Impairment analysis for long-lived assets and intangible assets

 

The Company’s long-lived assets and other assets (consisting of property and equipment and purchased intangible assets) are reviewed for impairment in accordance with the guidance of the FASB ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment and FASB ASC 205 Presentation of Financial Statements. The Company tests for impairment losses on long-lived assets used in operations whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of an asset to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such asset is considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value. Impairment evaluations involve management’s estimates on asset useful lives and future cash flows. Actual useful lives and cash flows could be different from those estimated by management which could have a material effect on our reporting results and financial positions. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques including undiscounted cash flow models, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary. The Company had not experienced impairment losses on its long-lived assets and intangible assets during any of the periods presented.

 

Digital Assets

 

Digital assets are accounted for as indefinite-lived intangible assets, and are initially measured at cost, in accordance with ASC 350 – “Intangibles-Goodwill and Other” (“ASC 350”). Digital assets can be sold at will, held for investment as such, are classified as a non-current asset.

 

These digital assets are not amortized, but are assessed for impairment annually, or upon a triggering event that indicates it is more likely than not that the indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired. Whenever the exchange-traded price of digital assets declines below its carrying value, the Company has determined that impairment exists and records impairment equal to the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair value. Once the intangible asset is impaired, the loss is not reversed if the fair value subsequently increases.

 

Earnings Per Share

 

FASB ASC Topic 260, Earnings Per Share, requires a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share (EPS) computations. Basic earnings (loss) per share are computed by dividing net earnings available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed similar to basic earnings per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. In periods where losses are reported, the weighted-average number of common stock outstanding excludes common stock equivalents, because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements. ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and enhances disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value is defined under ASC 820 as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants.

 

ASC 820 establishes a hierarchy of valuation inputs based on the extent to which the inputs are observable in the marketplace. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity and unobservable inputs reflect the entity’s own assumptions about how market participants would value an asset or liability based on the best information available.

 

Valuation techniques used to measure fair value under ASC 820 must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The standard describes a fair value hierarchy based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, that may be used to measure fair value.

 

The following describes the hierarchy of inputs used to measure fair value and the primary valuation methodologies used by the Company for financial instruments measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

 

11

 

 

The three levels of inputs are as follows:

 

  Level 1 Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has an ability to access as of the measurement date.
     
  Level 2 Inputs that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the same term of the assets or liabilities.
     
  Level 3 Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

A financial instrument’s categorization within the valuation hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Our financial instruments include cash, accrued expenses and other debt. The carrying values of these financial instruments approximate their fair value due to their short maturities. The carrying amount of our debt approximates fair value because the interest rates on these instruments approximate the interest rate on debt with similar terms available to us.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are provided for the tax effects of transactions reported in the financial statements and consists of taxes currently due and deferred taxes. Deferred taxes are recognized for the differences between the basis of assets and liabilities for financial statement and income tax purposes.

 

The Company follows FASB ASC 740, Income Taxes, which require the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recognized for the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each period end based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates, applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 

FASB ASC 740-10-25 provides criteria for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax position. The Company must recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position are measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate resolution. The Company did not recognize additional liabilities for uncertain tax positions pursuant to FASB ASC 740-10-25 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022.

 

Contingencies

 

Accounting guidance requires that the Company record an estimated loss from a loss contingency when information available prior to issuance of the consolidated financial statements indicates that it is probable that an asset has been impaired or a liability has been incurred at the date of the financial statements and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. Accounting for contingencies such as legal matters requires significant judgment. Many of these legal matters can take years to resolve. Generally, as the time period increases over which the uncertainties are resolved, the likelihood of changes to the estimate of the ultimate outcome increases.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk are cash and trade receivable arising from its normal business activities. The Company has its cash in high credit quality institutions. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations to its customers and establishes allowances when appropriate.

 

12

 

 

Advertising

 

Costs associated with advertising and promotions are expensed as incurred.

 

Employee Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for its share-based compensation plan in accordance with FASB ASC 718, Stock Compensation, which establishes a fair value method of accounting for stock-based compensation plans. The Company records stock compensation expense based on the grant-date fair value of the stock options or other equity-based compensation issued to employees.

 

Stock-based compensation issued to employees and members of our board of directors is measured at the date of grant based on the estimated fair value of the award, net of estimated forfeitures. The grant date fair value of a stock-based award is recognized as an expense over the requisite service period of the award on a straight-line basis.

 

For purposes of determining the variables used in the calculation of stock-based compensation issued to employees, the Company performs an analysis of current market data and historical data to calculate an estimate of implied volatility, the expected term of the option and the expected forfeiture rate. With the exception of the expected forfeiture rate, which is not an input, we use these estimates as variables in the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Depending upon the number of stock options granted any fluctuations in these calculations could have a material effect on the results presented in our statements of operations. In addition, any differences between estimated forfeitures and actual forfeitures could also have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

Non-controlling Interests

 

Non-controlling interests are measured at their proportionate share of the acquiree’s identifiable net assets at the acquisition date and is adjusted at each reporting date for the net income (loss) attributable to that non-controlling interest during that period.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Recently issued accounting updates are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s Financial Statements.

 

NOTE 3. Discontinued Operations

 

On September 29, 2022, the Company effectuated an Equity Transfer Agreement (the “Sell-Off Agreement”) among the Company, Communications and JFJ Digital Corp., a Delaware corporation (“JFJ”), whereby all of the outstanding equity of Communications was transferred to JFJ in exchange for the return of 15,306,119 shares of the Company’s Common Stock held by Jae Cheol Oh and Hong Rae Kim, the Company’s principal executive officer and members of the Board of Directors (the “Sell-Off”) . Pursuant to the Sell-Off Agreement, in addition to acquiring all of the outstanding capital stock of Communications, JFJ will assume all responsibilities for any debts, obligations and liabilities of Communications and acquire all rights to any assets of Communications.

 

As a result of the Sell-Off, Communications ceased being a subsidiary of the Company. Accordingly, the operating results of Communications are reported in pretax income (loss), income tax, income (loss) before loss on equity investment, loss on equity investment, income (loss) before non-controlling interest, non-controlling interest income (loss), and net income (loss) from discontinued operations in the Statements of Operations for all periods presented.

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 805, Business Combinations, the transaction was determined to be transfers and exchanges between entities under the common control. Accordingly, the difference between the proceeds received by the Company and the book value of the Communications and Communication’s subsidiaries has been recognized as an equity transaction and no gain or loss has been recorded.

NOTE 4. Earnings Per Share

 

The Company calculates earnings per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, Earnings Per Share, which requires a dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share are computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the fiscal year. Potentially dilutive common shares consist of stock options outstanding (using the treasury method).

NOTE 5. Deconsolidation of Subsidiaries

 

As of the Sell-Off date, which was September 29, 2022, the Company had approximately $12.6 million of total assets and $3.6 million of total liabilities on its balance sheet. As part of deconsolidation, we removed the balance of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (loss) which contains $2.4 million of foreign currency translation gain related to the Sell-Off companies. Those assets and liabilities were owned by Communications or Communications’ subsidiaries, such as I-ON, Ltd (Japanese subsidiary), eformworks Co., Ltd. (Korean subsidiary) and EIPGRID (Korean subsidiary). As a result of the Sell-Off Agreement, all assets and liabilities were transferred to JFJ.

 

Mr. Oh and Mr. Kim returned their shares of the Company, total 15,306,119 approximately 43% of total outstanding shares, to the Company in exchange for the transfer of all outstanding equity of Communications to JFJ. Stock price on September 29, 2022 was $0.067; therefore, the fair market value the proceeds was $1,025,510 which was calculated by multiplying the number of shares transferred to the stock price on September 29, 2022.

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 805, Business Combinations, the transaction was determined as transfers and exchanges between entities that are under the common control. Accordingly, the difference between the proceeds received by the Company and the book value of the Communications and Communication’s subsidiaries will be recognized as an equity transaction and no gain or loss would be recorded.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by 17 C.F.R. 229 (10)(f)(i) and are not required to provide information under this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As required by Rule 15d-15(b) under the Exchange Act, our management, including our principal executive and financial officer, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of September 30, 2023, the last day of the period covered by this Quarterly Report. Based on this evaluation, our management, including our principal executive and financial officer, concluded that, as of September 30, 2023, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

 

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls

 

Our management, including our principal executive and financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures, or our system of internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act), will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed or operated, can provide only reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the system are met. The design of our control system reflects the fact that there are resource constraints, and that the benefits of such control system must be considered relative to their costs. Further, because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control failures and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the intentional acts of individuals, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is also based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that the design of any particular control will always succeed in achieving its objective under all potential future conditions.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Due to the Company’s recent change of control during the period, there were significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting. Most significantly was the return of all financial transactions to occur in the United States than were previously being affected in the Republic of Korea. In addition, the Company has established formal iterative review processes which provide oversight to the Company’s efforts for ensuring appropriate and timely internal control over financial reporting including the formation of an audit committee, implementation of controls and multiple approval requirements to all bank accounts, dual approval requirements for certain expenses and requiring governance training of all directors and executive officers.
